Following the Royal Nuptials, if you can't stop thinking about Sarah Burton's dress for Princess Kate, you can now head to West Town where Chicago’s Supreme Novelty Fabrics is bringing the dress stateside.
Supreme Novelty Fabrics owner, Richard Schneider, says he's expecting a run on fabric that he is preparing this week following the Royal nuptials. Richard says that even brides who have purchased ready-to-wear dresses come to his legendary 80-year old store for fabric to personalize their dress, or in the case of this Royal Wedding, make their already-purchased dress look more like Kate’s.”
The fabrics he is offering in his store and online are a nearly-exact match: silk Duchesse satin, Italian satin, hand-dyed French Chantilly lace, and re-embroidered French Chantilly lace. The price range for these fabrics is $16.95 per yard to $199.95 per yard and can be sewn into a full-on Royal look-alike by Supreme's recommendations of Ruth Breese or Natalia at Studio N in the Ukrainian Village.
